About Me


At least half-way human, I was told.
I used to be a lawyer - now it's poetry in words & images.


Exploring the power of rooted simplicity. Not simple-mindedness.


侘寂. Marvels of nature. Spicy food of all kinds. Swimming in cold water followed by warm sunrays as dessert. Ceremonies. Silence and words. Indigenous approaches to life. Radio. Vinyls. Dancing. Ashtanga yoga. Human encounter in three dimensions. Imperfecions. Rock. Opera of Orpheus & Eurydice. Händel's Alcina.
